Alpha Centauri set a new course record in Royal Ascot's Coronation Stakes

Alpha Centauri set a course record at Royal Ascot when she captured the Group 1 Coronation Stakes, and in so doing may have earned a trip to the Breeders' Cup Mile this fall at Churchill Downs. According to attheraces.com, trainer Jessica Harrington has set a tentative schedule for the remainder of the filly's 3-year-old season.

Probable starts for Alpha Centauri include the Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket, Prix Jacques le Marois at Deauville, the Matron Stakes at Leopardstown and the Irish Champion Stakes.

“The only thing I have said is that I will not run her on soft ground, that goes without saying,” Harrington said. “The Breeders' Cup Mile would definitely enter calculations. I know that's their (owners) love and it would be lovely if everything goes all right if she stays in training next year.”
